Felt is a 2011 album by German composer Nils Frahm. It was released on 7 October 2011 on Erased Tapes records. The name of the record refers to Nils placing felt on the strings of his piano, initially to dampen the sound to enable nighttime playing and later as he liked the sound it produced. The album was also recorded with the microphones deep within the piano which was seen to provide a more intimate sound.

Having recorded his last album live in a large, reverberant church, Nils Frahm now invites you to put on your headphones and dive into a world of microscopic and delicate sounds – so intimate that you could be sitting beside him. Recorded late at night in the reflective solitude and silence of his studio in Berlin, Frahm uncovers a new sound and source of inspiration within these peaceful moments: ‘Originally I wanted to do my neighbours a favour by damping the sound of my piano

German-born musician and composer Nils Frahm, on the other hand, would make the ideal neighbour. It was in part to make sure he didn’t disturb the nocturnal rest of those around him that Frahm developed the calm intimacy of new album, Felt, by muting his piano. If I want to play piano during the quiet of the night, the only respectful way is by layering thick felt in front of the strings and using very gentle fingers

The liner notes from Nils Frahm are written as a letter ("Dear beloved listener,...") in which the creation of the albums music and its title is explained. "Felt" was used by Nils to dampen his piano for nighttime playing in respect for his neighbours. But it turned out that Nils fell in love with the quietness and special beauty of this piano sound.

Beautiful neo classical music. For those poetic dreams at night, strong rum and a bit of old cheese on a plank. Then, this music. There's no need to do any thinking, it's the music that does it for you. The need to break out seems farther away than ever. It's the wanting to deepen your spirit and silence that is awakened. Take another sip from that drink and sink deeper in your chair, side b is on.
Is that you, David Caspar?
